Hako Clear Tactile Switches

Mechanical Keyboard Switches

Hako Clear Switch

Hako True switches, invented by Input Club, have a unique force curve and a pink salt-colored slider. Elements from Cherry MX Clear and Topre are combined with a heavy spring for improved typing dynamics. Precision molds and tooling from Kaihua made the switches last 25% longer than regular MX variants during stress testing. In addition, the bespoke slider design virtually eliminates wobble.

Community enthusiasts Jacob Alexander (HaaTa) and Brandon Muzzin (Over^Kill) designed custom springs and sliders for the Hako line. Hako Trues use a heavy spring and have a peak tactile point of (approximately) 59 grams. Tactility occurs early in the key press. A 30 gram post-tactile cushion, in the form of a resistance ramp, is designed to prevent bottom out.
